Hydrating Aloe Vera Iced Tea

Heatwave on the horizon? Fuel up with our Hydrating Aloe Vera Iced Tea – the ultimate summer thirst-quencher. Made with our vibrant Fruity Oasis tea, this sweet and incredibly satisfying elixir was made to keep you extra cool when the AC just doesn’t cut it. It’s packed with mega-hydrating ingredients like aloe vera and coconut water that’ll restore your vitality with every sip. Plus we added a sprinkle of chia seeds for a healthy boost of fibre, protein and omega-3 (hello, brainfood!).

Our favourite part about this recipe? You can switch up the ingredients. Feel free to replace the aloe vera gel and coconut water with equally hydrating cucumber, watermelon or store-bought aloe vera juice. Bonus: You can also make this juicy drink with any tea that tastes great iced. The options are endless with this hot-weather buster.

Hydrating Aloe Vera Iced Tea

Ingredients

  • 2 Perfect Spoonfuls of Fruity Oasis tea
  • 1 cup hot water
  • ½ cup coconut water (unsweetened)
  • ½ tsp chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp fresh aloe vera gel
  • 1 tsp agave syrup to taste
  • 1 lime wedge
  • Mint leaves to garnish
  • Ice
  • Serves 1

Directions

Step 1
Brew tea in hot water for 7-10 minutes, then strain into a bowl and set aside.
Step 2
In a clear 12-16 oz glass, add chia seeds, agave and coconut water. Stir to combine and set aside for at least 10 minutes.
Step 3
To extract the aloe vera gel, peel skin off the leaf and slice lengthwise like a fish. Scoop out clear gel with a spoon, avoiding the yellow bit just below the rind.
Step 4
Add aloe vera gel to coconut water mixture. Pour in brewed tea, top with ice and garnish with mint leaves and a squeeze of lime. Sip up and cool off.

    Be careful with the aloe vera. The latex (yellow stuff just under the leaf skin) is a laxative.
